been reading live updates of jobs' special keynote...and along with an updated mini with the intel core single and duo processors, looks like there's an ipod boombox device that's supposedly directed toward "audiophiles"...more to come...

update: Quote:

iLounge: Pull black grille off of white box to reveal three speaker drivers.
Integrated power supply - no brick.
Power it off of six D-size batteries if you want. "Several hours outside."
Two 80mm mid-range drivers in sealed acoustic suspension.
In center is 130mm dual voice coil woofer, ported bass reflex design.
Great bass, doesn't distort when cranked up.
Universal Dock connector and integrated handles.

AGHH no video ipod, bummer, that sucks. So great now apple can compete with the other 10,000 ipod stereos out there. And its expensive, but....

according to Jobs, "I am a audiophile", "I am getting rid of my stereo". So yeah Steve Jobs says its audiophile material, so it must be.

Enter Apple Groupies
